The Background Texture Collection comprises over 800 seamless textures in sixteen colours. All tiles are seamless.
Use them in your PowerPoint presentations as background fills and textures and for AutoShape fills.
This image shows only a fraction of the seamless textures available as part of the Background Texture Collection - all actual textures are 100 x 100 pixels and completely seamless so that you can tile them!
Download a Free Show - You can download a free multimedia demonstration which explains myriad ways to use these backgrounds here. (2.37 mb - works on Microsoft Windows 95 through XP)
Use them as backgrounds for your web pages or wallpapers for your desktop. You could also use them as maps for your 3D creations, or as fills in your image editor. All these files are in ' truecolor' JPEG (.JPG) format. You may want to convert them to 256 or 216 colours. Some of the tiles in this collection are too dark to be used as web page backgrounds - in such cases, it may be essential to lighten them in your image editor or painting program to make them less distracting.
